Description

Firstly I removed the collar flap. I wanted the collar to stand out more and it now does… literally!
Then I removed both sleeves and added lace to the arm holes. I used the sleeve material to make a wide obi-style belt & used one of the cuffs as a centre piece detail on the belt. Overall I am very pleased with the result. I think it’s pretty & wearable. As a bonus I wasted very little of the material and most of my waste was unpicked thread!!

    This is a lovely idea and not too fiddly to do either.
